This is a small park with a big grassy mound in the middle and a few park benches and a plaque. What makes it very special is that it is a prehistoric burial mound for the Timucua Indians who inhabited this area thousands of years...More

We found this park as we were driving the scenic loop. Nice picnic area with playground and restrooms. Great stop to let the kids get out and run around. Would be a great place to also stop for picnic lunch.

The name, because of the word "Tomb" in it, makes this park sound like it would be a morbid place to go. Indeed it's not. Lots of playground equipment for the kids and it appears to be well maintained.

When cruising the Old Dixie Highway, Ormond Tomb Park is a good place for a rest stop. It is the final resting place for James Ormond, an original plantation owner and namesake of Ormond Beach. The site has a playground for the kids and restrooms...More
